Spain Holiday Offers

Spain has long been the British holidaymaker’s best friend, and with good reason. Family-friendly and purse-friendly, eager sun seekers flock to Spain’s sunny shores and culture vultures to its thriving cities. Bordered to the South and East by the Mediterranean, Northeast by France and with Portugal to the West, Spain is just a few hours flight from the UK.

The Balearic and Canary Islands are Spanish territory and for an island paradise, with beautiful weather year round - at an affordable price - there’s nowhere in the world better.

With delectable food and drink, spectacular beaches, modern facilities, thriving nightlife, world class cities and historical regions, whatever you’re looking for in a holiday, you’ll find it in Spain. The only problem is deciding what to do first!

After a few days in the Spanish way of life - healthy - yet delicious - Mediterranean food, great weather and licence to have a midday nap - you’ll come home feeling perfectly relaxed and full of life.

Madrid is a worthy capital city: a modern and vibrant city with plenty to do, day and night. Spain’s second city, Barcelona, is many people’s first choice when considering a city break due to its coastal location and beautiful beaches. 

 

For a true beach holiday, Spain’s options are vast and varied. Whether a family holiday with the kids, a relaxing break with your other half or a wild vacation with your mates, you’ll find something to your liking in Spain.

 

On mainland Spain, you’ll find popular resorts such as the rugged coast of Costa Brava, Costa Dorada - the sun-worshippers’ mecca- and the sunny Costa Del Sol in the south of the country.

 

Spanish territory also include the Baleric Islands- Majorca, the largest, and the clubbing capital of Europe, Ibiza - and the Canary Islands- Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote. 

The Mediterranean diet is credited to Spaniards living long and healthy lives. Fresh vegetables, flavoursome oils, grains and seafood are the main components to most Spanish foods- nice enough to allow you to wash it down with a glass of naughty red wine or Sangria!

 

Lunch is typically the main meal of the day. Traditionally eaten between 1.30 and 3pm, a big lunch is followed by an afternoon siesta as the temperatures reach their peak.

 

Spaniards are known to eat late. While it’s hard to shake your normal eating routine, you won’t expect to see the locals eating their evening meal until around 9pm. A lighter meal than lunch, the evening meal is traditionally enjoyed amongst friends and family, with a social tipple or two!

Review from Neil Hardy Reviewed 14 November 2013

I have spent many holidays and city breaks in Spain including Majorca, Ibiza, Costa Del Sol, Benidorm, Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia. For a family holiday I don't think you can beat Majorca especially the North and Madrid is perhaps my favourite city in Europe
